If you are going to listen to one thing these days, make it this episode of WorkLife with Adam Grant: https://podcasts.google.com/?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9mZWVkcy5mZWVkYnVybmVyLmNvbS9Xb3JrbGlmZVdpdGhBZGFtR3JhbnQ&episode=cHJ4XzEzMV85YWUwYmRlNS0wZWU2LTRkZjktYmQxZS1mMWEwYmM2Njk4MTA&ved=0CAsQzsICahcKEwjA3PHW4O7oAhUAAAAAHQAAAAAQAQ. The conversation, on the face of it, is about relationship and trust:
“Work relationships are complicated. Who holds the power and why? What are effective ways to solve conflict? And how do you know when it’s time to walk away? Adam gets personal with therapist Esther Perel to explore the dynamics of trust, power, and people pleasing.”
And there is so much more than this in this relatively short but full of insights talk. It’s a talk about the way we approach others; about realizing what makes us who we are; about assumptions and how to tackle them; about the things that underpin all of our actions. All of that, in a very accessible and often time humorous manner. The best part, I believe, is that the way Esther Perel puts things, it makes them look so achievable, so within our reach, so inspiring us to learn and change and become better versions of ourselves.
My best wishes for a great day ahead!
